Fluid modelling of island rotation in tokamaksFunded under: EAEC-FUSION 12C
In this paper the equilibrium of the various forces acting on the ion and the electron assemblies in a tokamak plasma are detailed. The effects of the magnetic perturbation have been modelled by defining two different regions in the plasma. The results of the asymmetric case only are given. Preliminary experimental results prove that original friction forces eefect the equilibrium as long as their size remain in the millimetre range.
